About Me

Vail photoWelcome to MW Literacy — a place for teachers, tutors, homeschooling (and non-homeschooling) parents to find resources for young learners with a comprehensive literacy approach.

Born and raised in New York City, I now call Connecticut home. I hold a B.A.  in behavioral science with a minor in English, and a master’s in Childhood Education with a focus in literacy. In my professional career, I have taught in the classroom, supported students through private tutoring, and served as an admissions evaluator. After the birth of my first child, I created what is now MW Literacy, a place to share mostly literacy-related resources to support those in the field of childhood education. You might see me throw in delicious, seasonal, and homemade recipes here or there, because let’s be honest — as Virginia Woolf once rightly said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
